CoimbatoreIn bold strokes, Subhas Chandra Bose gives a piercing glance from a potrait. Mahatma Gandhi benignly smiles from another frame of pencil art. Bharathiar's nationalistic fervour oozes through yet another lead shades.
 
From all-time great Charlie Chaplin to Mother Teresa, superstar Rajinikanth, Bruce Lee, Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, all celebrities have been sketched with amazing perfection by a young drawing treacher, N. Viswanathan (31). They were on display at a one-day exhibition at Amrita Vidyalayam school in Nallampalayam on Wednesday.
 
The young artist displayed his collections of pencil art, coloured pencil art, and Photoshop digital painting of portraits of national leaders, spiritual leaders, and nature at the exhibition.
Viswanathan, who hails from Athanur village in Thanjavur, had his first brush with painting when he was in class 3. The artist, who has completed his M.Phil in Tamil from Alagappa University in Karaikudi, specialises in pencil art.
